Ogoke was shot and killed by gunmen last week at a popular “Malaysian market” in Obowo Local Government Area (LGA) of Imo on Oct. 9.
The gunmen stormed the “Malaysian market” located in Umungwa, Obowo LGA and dispossed traders of their belongings, including money.

Ladodo said he had directed for a full scale investigation into the circumstances surrounding the killing of the bus driver with a view to arresting the culprits.
The commissioner said “nobody has the right to take another person’s life.
“So, those who robbed people of their belongings and also killed an innocent youth in the process must be tracked down.’’
